1974 John Deere 10 Speed Racer

Very rare

Steel frame, 21" frame

Downtube shifters

27x1 1/4 rims

The good:

*New chain
*New brake pads
*New brake cables and housing
*New brake levers
*New bar wrap
*New pedals
*New saddle

The bad:

*The wheels need to be trued (as far as I can tell they are the original wheels)

*Needs new tires (they hold air at 70psi, but they are worn)

*No front derailer, but it works really well in a 1x5 setup so I didn't bother installing one

This is a really unique bike, I'd never seen one before. It's rides really good, the only thing holding it back are the wheels. The frame is aged, and you can tell, but the patina adds to the character.

The drop outs are close to horizontal so this bike would be great for a single speed conversion.

Cash and pick up only.
